Wasn't it also Wilde who said "Your majesty is like a stream of bat's piss. You shine out like a shaft of gold when all around is dark."? Or was it Whislter? Maybe Shaw? No, it was Shaw who said "Your majesty is like a dose of clap. Before you arrive is pleasure, but after is a pain in the dong."

Sorry, couldn't help myself, the lead in was too good. You Python fans know who you are.

There is no way I could responsibly answer such a question, but if you were to ask some others on this board (who shall remain nameless), my guess is they'd say that "dong" is all too kind a reference. The difference between "Us" and "Them" (kind of Hemmingway thing) is that our teeth are only bared in defense. I must say I like the idea of a Wolf chained up in front of the house.

well, hopefully those "nameless" ones are not any of the regulars (not that "everyone" has to like me by any stretch - i'm not the easiest person) - i feel bad if i have pissed any of the regulars off though. i'm pretty sure i've made amends with the few i've butted heads with in the past - but i guess i don't know for sure.

As for anyone else - i could care less who likes and who doesn't. I always want to defend "our house" and always defend my friends - just my nature (in real life and forum life)

and that's what I like about you, dire. A sense of humour and defender of friends. No need to apologize in my book.
I've reviewed that thread of last nights and when I read TT's sexual/family reference, I went uh-oh!!
then your ex-wife retort had me laughing. You've come a long way's since Tito's dog-lol

There's funny, then there's toooo funny (like a prankster friend who put a little gunpowder in my pipe) Funny....now.

cigarette charges are fun though...

all i could picture was like a warner bros. cartoon with you just standing stock still, head totally black, wisps of smoke rising in the air, with pipe still in your mouth saying "ouch" - not funny in reality, but funny in my head :)

Well said. And on the subject of animals defending houses, that brings me around to the subject of cats v. dogs. As stated in my earlier post, I respect cats and can see the attraction they hold for folks. However, from a practical point of view until I hear some potential burglar say "Well, I was about to enter the house when I heard a tremendous "meow" that scared the crap out of me", I'll have to stick with my dogs, especially when one considers that I live in a less than reputable part of town and home defense is very important. While my mix breed is large and has a rather imposing set of teeth, the Boston Terrier is the fiercest thing on four legs I've ever seen. My guess is that while the thief is staring down the jaws of the bigger dog, the little one would jump up and clamp on the poor dude's jewels and lock his jaws. But, some of you may have "Attack Cats" that are also very protective of the home, an if so, I apologize to you in advance.
